The station located near Brownstown is 0.8 km (0.5 mi) south and 0.3 km (0.2 mi) east of the intersection of Fayette County Roads 1700N and 1700E on the University of Illinois Brownstown Agronomy Research Center property. The tower is located 150 m east of County Road 1700E. The nearest trees are located 100 m east of the weather tower. A larger cluster of trees is located 350 m east of the tower. Two deciduous trees and a military field storage unit are located 30 to 35 m southeast of the tower. Farther southeast, beyond the trees and the storage unit, is a group of deciduous large trees 135 m from the tower. The trees to the southeast extend westward to south of the station, where they are 250 to 500 m from the tower. Deciduous trees are also located 325 m southwest and 1,400 m west of the instrument tower. A farmstead is located 1,500 m northwest of the weather station, and a group of trees is located 1,300 m north-northwest of the station. The wind flow toward the weather station is significantly obstructed in a clockwise direction from the east to southwest of the station. Obstructions in the other directions are generally small enough and far enough away that wind flow to the tower is only minimally affected.
